2.2.6-git9, ath_pci and suspend

I have been having issues with the madwifi svn drivers since
I upgraded to the 2.6.26 kernel series. The problem I've been seeing
is that the connection sometime becomes disrupted and when the
NetworkManager attempts to reconnect it always asks for the WPA2
secret but never successfully reconnects. This issue appears to be
common and the solution that works here is to create a suspend_modules
file in /etc/pm/config.d containing the line...


This change has fixed the issue here on my MacBook Pro with Fedora 9 x86_64.
Does anyone know what changed with the suspend code in 2.6.26 that could
be causing this problem.
